Vote against brouach

Ayrshire Post - - Ayrshire @ View -

Fi­nally the Brexit sham­bles comes to the ‘ end game’ … or maybe not. It

is, how­ever, crunch time for our lo­cal MP Bill Grant.

All Con­ser­va­tive MPs are ap­par­ently go­ing back to their Con­stituen­cies

to be ad­vised on opin­ions re the With­drawal Agree­ment and the Po­lit­i­cal Dec­la­ra­tion. On De­cem­ber 11 Mr Grant has to vote on these mat­ters.

He needs to re­mem­ber that on Thurs­day 23 June 2016 in South Ayr­shire 36,265 vot­ers ( 59%) voted for Re­main, whilst 25,241 ( 41%) voted to leave.

The deal of­fered has been de­scribed as ‘ the worst of all worlds’ and every

fore­cast, even the UK Govern­ment’s own Trea­sury, show the UK and

Scot­land will be poorer.

Even the ‘ so called’ key suc­cesses fail to de­liver when scru­ti­nised. No

more Free­dom of Move­ment for EU ci­ti­zens will have a dis­as­trous im­pact on Ayr­shire’s food and drinks in­dus­try, the NHS, the ho­tel and tourist in­dus­try.

The flag­ship ‘ out of the Com­mon Fish­eries Pol­icy’ has been sunk without trace. Pres­i­dent Macron has made it ab­so­lutely clear that ben­e­fi­cial trade deals must be linked to fish­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions which must give Eu­ro­pean boats ex­ist­ing re­cip­ro­cal ac­cess to British wa­ters and ex­ist­ing quota shares. Re­mem­ber over the last 45 years suc­ces­sive Con­ser­va­tive and

Labour gov­ern­ments have sold out fish­ing as a less im­por­tant bar­gain­ing chip when they ne­go­ti­ated the CFP. If it looks like the CFP and be­haves like the CFP then it is the CFP’.

So only one so­lu­tion ex­ists – vote against this chaotic Brexit brouach, Mr Grant, and don’t let your con­stituents down as you did with the WASPI women.
